It's the same as a boss propositioning his underling: the boss wields power over the underling's life, so the underling feels unfairly pressured into a sexual situation. Allright, consider the following. A boss falls in love with one of his/her employees. Now according to these laws of yours he can...

Re: The Econmics of Unlimited Supply

As the virtual world becomes increasingly common and interfaces continue to get better one can easily predict (or read a good book about) some sort of cyber/virtual/matrix-esque world. As automation, AI and robotics technology get better one can see a world without a need for human labor. Analyzing...

I'm one of those people who is too skinny. I eat as much as I can. Every few hours. I can't eat that much at one time, or I get tired, but I eat frequently, all day. I get comments like "you're hungry, again?!" all the time. I always get accused of being anorexic, but I neither have an ea...

im just going to ignore whatever ongoing conversation in here and make my point. i believe that it was biology that lead to some of the differences, the rest was human creation. i believe that one of the main reasons women are the ones treating the children is the fact that a child always has a moth...

i believe that people should be given tools to deal with their problem, not just emotional support of any form, especially if such tools exist. i wished i wasn't born and thought of attempting suicide for many reasons other than depression. its not just that. theres more to it. from what i know, and...

Intentions to found Israel predate the holocaust. True It was not created as a safe haven. False This IS what the Israelies have been doing! Threatening, sending Kahane memebers over to kill palestinians, see my previously posted news articles That's odd. According to Wikipedia the Kahane party is ...

I talk to Palestinians quite often, and have obviously discussed Israel with them as it is apart of their daily lives. It isn't about who has a right to be angry at who, it's that people are dying . The majority of Palestinians do not hate Israelis, they hate Israel , the government of Israel. Just...

You make good points Rorgg, and I agree with many except one. That is that your idea of who has claim to the land. As far as I am concerned NO ONE does. The zionist movement was not based on the idea of living peacefully with others in jerusalem. It was based on taking over the then palestine, and ...

i used to do this as a kid. even worse, i forced myself to walk with the right leg first, and always walk the same amount on the same kind of surface with both legs. i started getting a bit easier on myself when i was actually forced not to step on the same kind of surface - i visited another countr...
